Blogging From A to Z Challenge - F

This will be a walk down memory lane, so to speak. The majority of the books I will be blogging about were acquired during my son's childhood. I will be blogging about children's, MG, and Tween books that are on the bookshelves, with a few being found on the Kindle for PC. The titles will either have words that correspond with the letter of the day, will be on a topic that corresponds with the letter of the day or both. As I'm finding a couple of the letters a bit challenging, I may need to borrow a book or two from the library to complete the challenge.

Today is Friday, April 6th.  It is the 6th day of the Blogging From A to Z Challenge.  Today's books are about fish and a frog.  Today's letter is F.

One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish

Author:  Dr. Seuss

If you've been following this blog, you already know that Dr. Seuss books were favorites when my son was growing up. 

Jump, Frog, Jump!  

Author:  Robert Kalan
Illustrator:  Byron Barton   

This was a fun book to read with my son.  Sometimes he'd pretend he was a frog and jump around the room.

QUESTION OF THE DAY:  Do you have a favorite book about a fish or a frog?

Hi Susanne .. It's interesting to see the books - not having had children .. I missed out on these sorts of things - though remember some from my childhood .... one or two I've written about within another post ..

I'm enjoying seeing the various books and concepts they're teaching .. I have no idea when I got my first dictionary .. I did have my school dictionary til relatively recently - it was an etymological one and I got it when I was 9 .. wish I still had it actually!

Cheers - love words and learning .. have a blessed weekend ... Hilary

Not a fish or frog- but Yertle the Turtle- my first Dr.Seuss book ever was a favorite of mine!

Thanks for bringing back a happy memory.

Other than the Frog and the Princess, I can't really think of any frog or fish stories.

My kids and I loved One Fish too! Frogs makes me think of all those poor guys waiting for kisses to free them :)

F is for fun fish and you can't go wrong with Dr Seuss.

Dr. Seuss was so amazing. It still boggles my mind that he hated children. How on earth could he write so fantastically? (Is that even a word) I just checked. It is a word.

I need to get the Jump Frog Jump. We used to have it. You just brought it back into my head. If I can't find it, I'll have to get another copy.

Great choices. You rock!

Yes, there's a "Froggy Goes to Bed" book I would read to my daughter. It's so cute!!

Johanna Garth said...

We loved Dr. Seuss and of course, all the Froggy books series but our favorite was Froggy Bakes a Cake.

I used to have a fun Dr. Seuss shirt with the "One Fish, Two Fish" saying on it. What a fun memory! Thanks!

We used 'One Fish' to help my kids start reading. Suess was great for that.

Love Dr Seuss. 'Rainbow Fish' is a good one- my girls like it, especially because of the sparkly fish! :)

I love the Dr. Suess books. I read them to my children growing up. Now I read them to my grandchildren.
Thanks for stopping in to congratulate me. That was sweet.

Dr. Seuss was always a favorite in our house when my children were growing up. We had a lot of them memorized.
Are you doing Horton Hears A Who tomorrow? LOL!
Enjoy the A to Z challenge!

I was so glad when Dr. Seuss came on the scene, around the time my oldest daughter was born (in 1963). He saved me from reading Cinderella and The Three Little Pigs over and over and over again! My favorite is "those pale green pants with nobody inside them.:

Love your F post, Susanne!

Hi, Susanne,

Ahh...these books bring back such fond memories of when my sons were little and we used to read books like these at bedtime.

I always loved Frog and Toad Together books!

The Jump Frog Jump book sounds great ... I love books that inspire my kids to get up and move. From Head to Toe by
Eric Carle is a favorite.

Found you through a to z!

Does Hermit count? I loved Hermit. I wanted to smack Miss Piggy and tell her to get lost. LOL. "Hermit's mine," I used to yell. My sons worried about me. LOL.
